**Definitions:**

**Kilopound Per Linear Inch** (abbreviation: **kips/in**): is a force in kilopounds applied over a unit length in linear inch.

**Kilopound Per Linear Foot** (abbreviation: **kips/ft**): is a force in kilopounds applied over a unit length in linear foot.

## How to Convert Kilopounds Per Linear Inches to Kilopounds Per Linear Feet

*Example: How many kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 51.3 kilopounds per linear inches?*

As;

1 kilopounds per linear inches = 12 kilopounds per linear feet

51.3 kilopounds per linear inches = Y kilopounds per linear feet

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 51.3 times 12 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 51.3 * 12 / 1 = 615.6 kilopounds per linear feet

Answer is: 615.6 kilopounds per linear feet are equivalent to 51.3 kilopounds per linear inches.
